ROAD WORK: Company-X co-founder and director Jeremy Hughes led the team that developmed the proof of concept for the One Network Road Classification Performance Measures Reporting Tool for the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Road Efficiency Group commissioned Company-X to build the One Network Road Classification Performance Measures Reporting Tool for the use of every Road Controlling Authority (RCA) in New Zealand.

ABOUT THE ROAD EFFICIENCY GROUP

The Road Efficiency Group (REG) aims to address high variability in service and costs across the national road network.

REG is a collaborative initiative between the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, Local Government New Zealand, and Road Controlling Authorities (RCAs) of New Zealand.

REG was formed in 2012 as the authority to implement the recommendations of the broader Road Maintenance Task Force.

THE CHALLENGES

Roading engineers across New Zealand wanted to standardise the performance of roads, address historical inconsistencies, and promote economic growth.

Subject matter experts from REG developed a set of standards to help road asset managers better understand their network and tell their investment stories.

A tool was needed to enable Performance Measures reporting and data analysis.

THE SOLUTION

Company-X co-founder and director Jeremy Hughes took the time to understand the requirements, understand the opportunity, and to develop a set of user requirements that REG agreed were the principles for developing the proof of concept.

In partnership with subject matter experts, Company-X developed the One Network Road Classification Performance Measures Reporting Tool for the Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.

THE RESULTS

Data from 69 road controlling authorities nationally are regularly imported into the ONRC PMRT built by Company-X.

Asset managers use Performance Measures reports when developing their business cases for the Regional Land Transport Plan.

The tool has become crucial to decision-making around future investment and road-user safety.

The tool earned praise from users as being simple to use and understand.

It quickly became the transport sector’s go-to reporting tool for roading managers wanting to understand how the outcomes on their network are measuring up.
